Nice restaurant at the beach. The waitress is kind and they serve local dishes. There is a lot of people eating there, maybe from the cruises and excursions. We went to Valley Church beach and decided to eat there some chicken wings and lobster.

We spent a few hours on the beach while we were visiting on the cruise ship. Great spot! We LOVED the coconut shrimp! Friendly staff, brought food and drinks to the lounge chairs (we rented). Would definitely go back.

We visited church beach. We got beer and frozen drinks from The Nest. The prices were great for a beach bar. The servers are friendly. Speed is island time.

Plenty of food very tasty and enjoyable. The staff were all very nice but can be busy when cruise ships in St John’s.

Ate here at lunchtime and had a great meal. The highlight for me was the amazing coconut shrimp washed down with a cold beer and fabulous views of Valley Church beach.

Hi Jack, We made it through without any damage to the buildings. The landscape took a big hit so we are working on getting it back together. Thanks for your concern. Neil
